on that and a check with the markets, jeff cutmore is live from london. good morning you to. >> good morning. you know, uncle ben has gone back into his toolbox and he's pulled out one thing we were expecting which was a continuation of the bond buyback program. so that was pretty much baked into the story. but the thing we weren't expecting, perhaps, was this change in policy and this tying of zero interest rates to the unemployment rate. he now saying it remains at near zero until we get the jobs rate down below 6.5%. we're currently sitting at 7.7%. so there is a little room to go yet. we have near zero interest rates to come. unsurprisingly, markets like it but not quite as much as you might have expected given that they knew part of the deal was already due to come down the pike. >> apple and the headlines, what do we know about them trying to dive head first into the tv market? >> yeah. it's a fascinating story, isn't it? apple share price has gone from the dizzy heights of over $700 and we're now in $500 and change territory. part of the reason think the momentum is slowing for apple. what come
